Artist's Description

one of my favourite Owls and I was standing a foot away! Taken at the medieval town of Chauvingy in the Vienne SW France. We were able to see a lovely bird show and saw one of the Vultures fly up and away – fabulous!

My Mum has the following words on a poster and it is quoted quite frequently!

THE WISE OLD OWL SAT IN THE OAK
THE MORE HE HEARD THE LESS HE SPOKE
THE LESS HE SPOKE THE MORE HE HEARD
WHY CAN WE NOT, BE LIKE THAT WISE OLD BIRD

Taken at the Medieval Town of Chauvigny. Chauvigny is a commune in the Vienne department in the Poitou-Charentes region in western France.

Chauvigny is located 20 miles (32 km) east of Poitiers by rail. The town is finely situated overlooking the Vienne River and a small brook. Chauvigny is twinned with Billericay in Essex, England.
Chauvigny features two interesting Romanesque churches, both restored in modern times. There are also ruins of a château of the bishops of Poitiers, and of several other strongholds.

Near Chauvigny is the curious bone-cavern of Jioux, the entrance to which is fortified by large blocks of stone.

The town carries on limeburning and plaster-manufacture, and there are stone quarries in the vicinity. Trade is in wool and feathers.

At the top of the town a Bird Show is held – the birds are all kept in lovely cages and fly daily (weather permitting!) They have many different breeds including Vultures! A wonderful way to spend a couple of hours, watching and learning and the views!!
